By Tricia Nelson March 3, Crystal Spring became the first in the county to pass a resolution to become a sanctuary (safe) city for preborn children. It is the fifth city in the state to become a safe city. October 1, 2019, Pearl was the first city to pass the resolution. Brandon became the second city to pass the resolution by passing one in January. Since then, several cities have adopted the Safe City resolution, including New Albany, Florence, McClain, and French Camp, and several others are working to pass it.

The full resolution is available on the Safe City Crystal Springs Facebook page.
